Nykaa has launched some really pretty nail polishes recently and me being a nail polish addict bought the whole set. This post is about the New Nykaa Pretty in Pastel Nail Polish Collection Review.

The Nykaa Pretty In Pastel Nail Enamel Collection is NOT tested on animals and contains no animal-derived ingredients.
My Take On The Nykaa Pretty in Pastel Nail Polish Collection:-
It comes in the standard Nykaa packaging, a square glass bottle with the long black handle. The only change I can see is the brush. It’s thicker and flat with round tip. I actually like this brush a lot as it gives me more control.
Colour And Consistency:-
The colours are very pretty. The consistency is good. It’s nice and smooth
Price And Shelf Life:-
The individual bottle retails for ₹ 179 but I bought the whole set so for me one bottle retails for ₹ 161 for 9 ml as you get 10% off on the set
My Experience with the Nykaa Pretty in Pastel Nail Polish Collection:-
So there are 8 polishes in this collection
Nykaa Pretty In Pastel Nail Enamel – Purple Unicorn 180
It’s a very pretty soft purple shade. I really like the colour. But there is nothing Unicorn-ish about the polish. I mean it’s not shimmery or Iridescent, it’s just a simple purple. It took 3 thin coats to be completely opaque.
Nykaa Pretty In Pastel Nail Enamel – Blue Mermaid 181
Again nothing Mermaid-y about this colour just a simple blue. This one gave me a bit of problem. It was a bit bumpy. Also took 3 coats to be opaque
Nykaa Pretty In Pastel Nail Enamel – Ocean Mist 182
The consistency of this one is very nice. It went very smoothly and was completely opaque in 3 coats. This is a very pretty cool blue colour and will look so nice with sea themed manicures.
Nykaa Pretty In Pastel Nail Enamel – Mango Slush 183
This is a nice bright very yummy looking yellow colour and will look so good with a food themed manicure. This one also went on smoothly and took 3 coats for full coverage
Nykaa Pretty In Pastel Nail Enamel – Pina Colada 184
One of the perfect colour for summer. This is a pale yellow milky shade. It took only 2 coats to be opaque, which is good. The formula is very nice and it went on very smoothly.
Nykaa Pretty In Pastel Nail Enamel – Summer Peach 185
This one is a very pretty nude shade. A very lovely pastel peach. Took 3 coats for full coverage. This one also went on smoothly.
Nykaa Pretty In Pastel Nail Enamel – Pink Malibu 186
This is a nice and bright pink shade and opaque in 2 coats. I really like the colour
Nykaa Pretty In Pastel Nail Enamel – Kiwi Kooler 187
This is a very lovely minty shade and completely opaque in 2 coats.
As I said before I really like the brush. It gives me more control and cleaner manicure. Now the texture of the polishes is nice and smooth. None of them gave me any problem except the Blue Mermaid. Overall I like these nail polishes and I think the colours are super pretty. And these are 5 free so that’s really good.

The bottom Line:-
